Day 9: What Bored People Do in Winter


Gorgeous snowy view of the hill behind my office.

Shoot greedy squirrels off their birdfeeders, that’s what. No, not me. I was a good Janathoner today. I went to the gym & rode the Expresso bike pretty hard for 7.5 mi., then stretched & rolled my quads, hams, calves & feet. I did this after a full day’s work.

When I was almost thru with my workday, my husband came into the office… to show me a dead squirrel he’d dolled up in a little knit hat & knitting basket (Christmas tree ornaments he “borrowed”). You have to admit, it’s cute as hell. (The squirrel-in-an-outfit part, not the dead part.)

He was planning to photograph it, for a prank on a local friend. I knew I was running out of photo ideas for my blog. You do the math.

Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up...

Alright Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up…

    There is more than just a small element of the deadness that distracts from the cuteness.

    Nice snow though :-)

    Too funny…I could definitely see my fiancee doing the same thing. And leaving it on the deck poised to scare the cats!

    That’s brilliant :) Well done on your gym visit, especially the foam rolling #hardcore

    I have never seen such an excellent use of a deceased squirrel – very Beatrix Potter!
